How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
—Isaiah 52:7

Dear Friends,

I don’t know how beautiful you would think my feet are, but there are lots of good things going on right now. I keep hearing about wonderful conversations and connections people are having with one another in the midst of our social isolating. We’re putting to good use a number of online platforms. We’re taking full advantage of our usual email, phone and website options. But we’ve now greatly expanded to include Facebook Live Streaming, Instagram, Zoom and Messaging. What a wild online world it suddenly is, and somewhat challenging to keep up. But how grateful I am to have so many choices when it comes to staying in touch.

I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback for our Sunday Hymn Sing and Facebook Live services. I’m also pleased with the Weekday Watch Prayer services I began on Monday. If you’re having any trouble finding your way to these offerings, please call or email. We’d love to help.

In addition, I’ve been asked to pass along the information below about our upcoming Christmas Fair. I love thinking about a time when we can be back together, back in our beautiful building, back engaged in our normal work of ministry. I hope Pam’s announcement will give you the same lift it gave me. There will be light at the end of the tunnel.

Yours in Grace,
Rev. Kevin
